If your phone is rooted you. Can do it search on google for the path where market apps are saved.
I can save you some time though...as Aldiko doesn't install on my tablet.

but is there a reader I can use that will allow me to read DRM protected books now?

How do I use purchased EPUB books with calibre?¶
Most purchased EPUB books have DRM. This prevents calibre from opening them. You can still use calibre to store and transfer them to your e-book reader. First, you must authorize your reader on a windows machine with Adobe Digital Editions. Once this is done, EPUB books transferred with calibre will work fine on your reader. When you purchase an epub book from a website, you will get an ”.acsm” file. This file should be opened with Adobe Digital Editions, which will then download the actual ”.epub” e-book. The e-book file will be stored in the folder “My Digital Editions”, from where you can add it to calibre.

I tried the free version of Alkido 1.2.9, but I hate the way the bookshelf looks, so I sent with Kobo, since I can sideload my epub files to it.

points to this link (use at your own risk! haven't tested and can't confirm safety of file!)
as a free copy of the Aldiko 2.0 reader apk file that was made for Archos. That's the claim at least...
You can install an apk manually by downloading the file to your desktop computer, connecting your Tablet by USB to your computer, loading the apk file on your sd card, navigating to the file using the free application ASTRO, and clicking on it. A menu will open that asks if you want to 'Open App Manager'. Navigate the dialogs to install the application on your device.
Hope this helps!

You can adb pull the Aldiko file from your system/app directory on your phone and then install it on your Tablet (either with adb install or by loading the apk onto SD card and then manually installing it) to give it a shot. If there is a way to enter a confirmation code in the app, then I suppose this method will work.
There are lots of ADB tutorials on the web if you haven't played around with it for file manipulation on Android devices. Here is a good one over at XDA:

Nothing, actually. When I click on the apk in ASTRO in brings up the file summary, IIRC, but there's no install button.
It sounds like Astro isn't recognizing it as an .apk file. It's not being loaded onto your tablet as a compressed file or with strange characters or spaces in the name is it?

Just download the standard version for your tablet.

Does anyone know if there's a reliable way to transfer apps purchased on Market on an Android phone to a Cruz tablet? I recently purchased the premium version of Aldiko for my phone and I'd love toÂ put a copy on my tablet. Is that possible?
download dropbox from freewarelovers and dropbox on your phone and sign in on cruz and all your apps will be right there just download your apps onto your cruz and extract them
